Ceil­ing height

Matamata Chronicle - - Advertising Feature -

The stan­dard height of ceil­ings is usu­ally 2.4 me­tres. But some peo­ple choose up to three me­tres. This can give the house a feel­ing of space, grand­ness and el­e­gance, but it will prob­a­bly add to your build­ing costs.

How­ever, ac­cord­ing to real es­tate agents, homes with higher ceil­ings gen­er­ally fetch bet­ter prices than sim­i­lar qual­ity homes with the stan­dard ceil­ing heights.

Con­sider mix­ing the ceil­ing heights, for ex­am­ple hav­ing lower ceil­ings in your bed­rooms and adding height in the liv­ing spa­ces.

Higher ceil­ings will re­quire heat­ing with cir­cu­la­tion sys­tems to spread the heat and air evenly.
